Ze Engleeche Langwidge

Moi loves word games :) Did you know ...
  • No proper English word rhymes with "month"
  • "Queueing" has the most consecutive vowels in the English language
  • "Floccinaucinihilipilifacation" means "Action of estimation as worthless" (If you don't want to join the "What-in-heck-does-the-meaning-mean?" club, please to explain the meaning to moi). It is also, according to the Guinness Book, the longest English word with 29 letters.
  • "Arachybutyrophobia" means "Fear of eating peanut butter sandwich lest the peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth". Now you know what was always bothering you :)
  • "Pantophobia" means ... yep you guessed it :) ... fear of everything!!! Oooh sorry, guess you didn't guess it. Ne'er mind pardner, nice to know you're human too.

And a few cute quotes:

  • Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read.
  • Life is a waste of time; time is a waste of life, so get wasted all of the time and have the time of your life.
  • No guts, no glory. No brain, same story.
  • Familiarity breeds contempt and children.

Keep smilin' :)
